During the pandemic we have virtual conferences, virtual meetings, virtual fitness sessions and virtual pints with friends. A virtual Brexit may be next.

Commentators in the UK have noted a definite change of tone from British prime minister Boris Johnson following what just so happened to be a virtual meeting with senior figures from the EU side last week.

According to British newspaper reports, the British government will hammer out a new plan this week aimed at getting failed Brexit negotiations going by identifying areas where they believe they can compromise.
